Quaint little theater with good acoustics. Friendly staff. Nice comfy seats. If there's a show here you would like to see, I would recommend it.

This former movie theater has been transformed into a great community event space. They showcase local talent before the main event and make out of town people feel special. A great evening.

The Don Gibson is a beautiful theater as well as a wonderful tribute to the song writer, Don Gibson. Great artists perform on a regular basis. It is well worth checking out their web site for upcoming concerts and other events.

We saw 70s/80s country music/broadway star Gary Morris at this renovated movie theater. It was a great venue for a man, his guitars and his amazing vocal range. There are no bad seats in the house and those seats are comfortable. There is a bar,...More

Excellent place to get away for an evening -- right here in Shelby! Their ability to bring popular artists only cements what an exceptional venue this is.
